About friggin' time. Seeing as he'll need at least 2 more books to wrap up the story and there are only 2 more seasons of GoT left, the show will wrap up LOOOOOONG before the books will (which will probably be at least another 5 years or so, at his normal pace). Hopefully he has 2 alternate endings in mind, because it would be a shame if the show ruined the ending of the books...

So what, he only wrote 1 episode this past season. D.B. Weiss and David Benioff wrote several episodes including the finale unlike George RR Martin who only did the second episode.

OMG. He's exercising priorities? Thank goodness. Any progress on the books is welcome.
